Council is looking for your ideas to plan for the future of Balmain Town Hall Precinct. The precinct takes in the area from Balmain PCYC to the new Balmain Square. We want to pay tribute to the vitality of the surrounding high street and preserve the important heritage of the area.

Council will also be upgrading the Balmain Library as a priority project in this area to bring the library up to contemporary design standards. The upgrades to the library will be focused on:

  • improving customer experience
  • reviewing the layout of the library and the allocation of space
  • building renewal and repairs including rectification of water damage, access issues and painting
